Strong Winds Blow Over 11 Vehicles on Wyoming Highways
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Transportation says 11 vehicles on Wyoming highways blew over on Tuesday due to strong winds.
Nine vehicles blew over on Interstate 25 south of Cheyenne, while two were toppled on Interstate 80. Nobody died in the blow overs.
Department spokeswoman Aimee Inama said the agency was still working on compiling accident reports. She said she was unsure if anyone had been injured in relation to the blow overs.
The department said vehicles began to tip over Tuesday afternoon. More than one of the vehicles caused crashes.
The department said wind in southeast Wyoming topped 60 mph in several places and climbed over 80 mph at two Union Pacific locations several miles from Interstate 80.
